Wet Tropics-Queensland

The Wet Tropics extend from Townsville up north to Cooktown and include national parks like as Daintree, Barron Gorge and Wooroonooran. An area of almost 1 million hectares has been declared World Heritage. The rainforests contain an almost complete record of the most important stages in the evolution of plant life on our planet. Over 350 rare and endangered plant species and over 20 extremely rare animal species such as brush-tailed bettongs, yellow-bellied gliders and Australia’s largest flightless bird – the Cassowary – can be found in the Wet Tropics. Queensland’s highest mountains, Mount Bartle Frere and Bellenden Ker, as well as the country’s highest single-drop waterfall – the 305 m high Wallaman Falls, can also be found within the area. The Wet Tropics represent an impressive example of superlative natural phenomena. 600 km of roads make this a very accessible and most enjoyable destination for visitors; activities such as bushwalking, swimming, river rafting, mountain climbing and scenic drives are all readily available.
